GIVE DIRECTLY THROUGH UNISA'S WORKPLACE GIVING PROGRAM

If you are a staff member at UniSA, you can easily make donations directly to the University or to other charities through payroll deductions.

Using UniSA's HR portal you can make a one-off donation, or commit to a regular donation and spread the amount across the year. The donation is made directly from your salary by Payroll Services, and the University adjusts the amount of tax to be withheld accordingly. This means you get the benefit of the tax deduction immediately.

Regular donations quickly add up: if you donate just $15 each fortnight (the cost of a few coffees), then you will donate $390 over the full year, but the cost to yourself will be much lower (depending on your tax bracket - see the table below for examples).

Example - $10 or $15 donation every fortnight, using ATO published tax rates as at 29 April 2021, plus 2% Medicare Levy for all rates. Note that individual calculation of cost to employees may vary from these examples, which do not account for your personal tax situation (i.e. any available tax offsets etc.). If you have specific queries about your personal tax situation, the University recommends you seek professional tax advice.
